    You got 1 month to do it all. That is more than enough. All I got left is two guardian fights and shaper.

    I sincerely hope you're right about having enough time. Btw, does anybody know if they plan to incorporate abyss stuff into the base game?

    Reached LVL92, not fun dying after that point cause red maps give ~2/100 XP, all I got to do after that is spending points on HP nods that give whoopin 60-80hp
    Todo list: one guardian (Fenix) and Shaper. I have 12/15 Memory Fragments but running around Atlas and changing influence is so fuking time consuming, cost some orbs (if you don't have some maps) and RNG ridden it's not even funny.

    Got enought exes to buy Bisco's Collar, so far results are... not impressive. 98IncrQuantity and 287IncRarity. Using Alchemy Orbs and sextants, still meh results.

    I hate them too when played with other characters, currently Frost Blades spam with Regen+leech character is good against them

    I got my guatdian to 93 and juggernaut is getting close to 90.
    I said to myself I would only play one character this league and then I got lucky with items for sale and exalts that dropped and ended up with 4 fully equipped characters lol.

    And now one month until end of league I am still not done and I am already thinking about characters for next league..
    I play this game way too much now.. I now know how WoW players must have felt..

    lukaszek Duly noted. I'll probably still give it a spin next league, though. Doesn't hurt to do a shit build now and then, it's educational.

    I don't run that many maps myself, but I had 0 problems sustaining (and building) a respectable map pool after breaching the usual initial t8-9 hiccup.
    Generally, I have no problems chaining t12-14 maps with good sustain rates, with occasionally doing t15-16 maps - these are likely impossible by design to sustain in the "normal" game scenarios, outside of sextant blocking and high MF stacking.

    I don't do MF, and I don't do sextants.
    All I have is the full atlas unlock + trying to roll 25+ packsize on maps (generally it's alch-and-go, though) + occasionally throwing a good Zana mod on if the overall map mods benefit from that (breach on good layouts with high packsize and yuge open spaces, beyond on otherwise beefy maps that don't merit breach). T14+ get chiseled.

    For the last 3 days this shit is happening to me. Can't drop red maps at all. I feel like I should not have played, just take a mini-break or something. Can't shrug off the feeling I have wasted my maps. Funny how bad luck works and I'm so close to 97.

    4 red maps in 3 runs. I think i'm ok again.

    But i think i'm done with this league. Got mask and wings, but not portal. Challenges that left are either too grindy or too luck dependent, like stupid lich. 2 leagues in a row is pretty tiring and i think i need a break.
